Long Weekend in Boston

We flew up to chilly Boston on Thursday afternoon with Kevin's parents for his cousin's wedding.  What a wonderful trip we had!

That afternoon we walked around the Quincy Market and over to the Long Wharf.  We had a late lunch/early dinner at Legal Seafood.  Afterwards we walked around the water (we were freezing and trying to stand in the sun the whole time!).

 Kevin's cute parents!

Thursday night Kevin's Aunt and Uncle (Sue and Jeff) flew in from Phoenix so we joined them at their hotel for dessert. 

Friday we walked around, had lunch, went to the Back Bay area and walked around then headed back to the hotel around 3ish to get ready for the Rehearsal dinner.  It was at Kevin's other uncle's home in West Newton, MA. 

Here we are with one of Kevin's cousins Brittany and her boy.  We had so much fun hanging out with Brittany and her sister Michaela.  They are so super sweet.  You'll see Michaela in some pictures below.

Kevin and I at the rehearsal dinner.  Their home was absolutely stunning - older, white home with a large yard, lots of history and an amazing back deck.  I was in love.

Kevin's Mom, her sister Sue and her brother Larry who is the father of the bride!

I found out on Friday night that my best friend from being 5 years old was in town from Philly with her boyfriend Vlad.  They were visiting their friend Vinny in the Cambridge area.  So on Saturday Kevin and I went to Back Bay to meet them.  We had a wonderful lunch at Joe's.  We tried to go to Stephanies on the corner across the street but there was a long wait.  It was just nice to all be together and for Lindsay and Kevin to meet.  Loved having the two of them together and getting to spend more time with Vlad too!

After a stop at the Lilly store on Newbury Street (In the Pink) which I'll tell you all about in another post (fabulous!), we headed back to the hotel to get ready for the wedding.  Here are Kevin and I waiting for the ceremony to begin.  The whole event took place at a really neat art museum in Boston.

Kevin's parents, Brittany, Kevin, Michaela.  I think this is a wonderful picture!!

This is Kevin and I with Brittany and Michaela (bride's sisters).  They are both in school and are smart ladies!  Michaela got a big scholarship to GW in DC and Brittany is an amazing musician at Berklee in Boston.  Talented right?!  And they are both reading my blog - hey yall!

The stunning bride with her groom....cutting their Boston Creme Pie.  It was so tasty!

Below is Kevin and I with his parents!  Mr. Godfrey asked me to dance which was super cute! 

Let me tell yall - the wedding was done to perfection.  In fact, the entire weekend was.  It was all gorgeous and simply perfect! 

Kevin and I with the bride and groom.  What a lovely couple and cheers to many, many years of happiness!
Yesterday we were invited to brunch at the Langham Hotel in Boston before we headed out.  Let me tell yall - it was the most amazing brunch.  They had oysters on the half shell, calamari, shrimp, tuna, sushi, clam chowda, you name it plus the usual brunch items.  I say usual brunch items but these were not usual.  Everything was done to a tee and it was all presented wonderfully.  You name it, they had it at this brunch!

We flew back yesterday afternoon and did our laundry and got our acts together for the week.  It was difficult to wake up this morning but we had such a great time!  I love wedding weekends away - they are just a blast! 

Thank you to Kevin and his parents for including me on your family's wedding weekend!  :)  I loved meeting everyone!

What a fun weekend! I love Boston. I actually ate at Legal Seafood YEARS ago on my first trip to Boston. However, my food was awful and I couldn't eat shrimp for several months after. Everyone with me loved their food though! Hope you had a better experience : )

Awww, awesome weekend! Shopping on Newbury St reminds me of visiting AshSudds up there -- good times. Beautiful wedding, and how sweet of Kevin's father to ask you to dance. :)

Awesome looking wedding! I love all the blue, and the fact that they had a pie instead of a cake! :D

You look fabulous! I love your dress. I'm shopping around for two weddings this year ... can't find a thing that I like or fits well.

You and Kevin look so sweet together.
